    This should be read by everyone.. What is missing from Sowell's biographical sketch is the fact that he started out as a Marxist and with education and time realized the terrible flaws in the Marxist theories. This is his hardest hitting commentary to date and is absolutely correct.
    By Dr. Thomas Sowell

    The current Occupy Wall Street movement is the best illustration to date of what President Barack Obama's America looks like. It is an America where the lawless, unaccomplished, ignorant and incompetent rule. It is an America where those who have sacrificed nothing pillage and destroy the lives of those who have sacrificed greatly.

    It is an America where history is rewritten to honor dictators, murderers and thieves. It is an America where violence, racism, hatred, class warfare and murder are all promoted as acceptable means of overturning the American civil society.

    It is an America where humans have been degraded to the level of animals:defecating in public, having sex in public, devoid of basic hygiene. It is an America where the basic tenets of a civil society, including faith, family, a free press and individual rights, have been rejected. It is an America where our founding documents have been shredded and, with them, every person's guaranteed liberties.

    It is an America where, ultimately, great suffering will come to the American people, but the rulers like Obama, Michelle Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, liberal college professors, union bosses and other loyal liberal/Communist Party members will live in opulent splendor.

    It is the America that Obama and the Democratic Party have created with the willing assistance of the American media, Hollywood, unions, universities, the Communist Party of America, the Black Panthers and numerous anti-American Barack Obama has brought more destruction upon this country in four years than any other event in the history of our nation, but it is just the beginning of what he and his comrades are capable of.

    The Occupy Wall Street movement is just another step in their plan for the annihilation of America."Socialism, in general, has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it."
    Thomas Sowell

    OWS is all about re-electing Obama. I think Sowell is overreacting here. OWS does not represent America: it represents the paid activists, paid with Soros lucre, who are doing their best to support a weak president.

    Sowell is not overreacting. He hit the nail right on the head. Even though OWS does not represent a majority of America(hell, if there ever was a 1%, it's them), they are what Obama perceives as his America. You are right in your contention that they are paid activists for the political left but don't think Sowell is overreacting in this article. He's 100% right.

    But president hussein is right on track according to his adopted political tenets - the nation must first be destroyed before it can be rebuilt.

    Marxism

    While not overtly so, Democratic Socialists of America is essentially a Marxist organization.

    In an article in DSA's Democratic Left, Spring 2007, DSA National political Committee member David Green of Detroit wrote in support of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA)-or "card check".

    What distinguishes socialists from other progressives is the theory of surplus value. According to Marx, the secret of surplus value is that workers are a source of more value than they receive in wages. The capitalist is able to capture surplus value through his ownership of the means of production, his right to purchase labor as a commodity, his control over the production process, and his ownership of the final product. Surplus value is the measure of capitalís exploitation of labor
    Green went on to write;

    Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production. Our immediate task is to limit the capitalist classís prerogatives in the workplace...

    The only way Obama gets re-elected is if your ilk turns up the heat on election day with more thugs at polling places and busing more homeless from polling place to polling place to vote multiple times. And don't think they won't.

    By the time election day comes, people will have to literally battle their way to vote. We haven't gotten to occupy the vote yet.

    It is around 40-45 right now with 40 going Ham Sandwich against Obama and 45 as Obama's base number. I think he has a 5 point head start.

    But that is national. The real issue is Ohio and Colorado.
